Who Needs Hacked CRU Emails

…when you’ve got the “Danish Text”

The UN Copenhagen climate talks are in disarray today after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations.

Leaked documents? I blame the Russkies!

The document is also being interpreted by developing countries as setting unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions for developed and developing countries in 2050; meaning that people in rich countries would be permitted to emit nearly twice as much under the proposals.

Separate but unequal! I can emit certain greenhouse gasses with the best of ’em.

The so-called Danish text, a secret draft agreement worked on by a group of individuals known as “the circle of commitment” – but understood to include the UK, US and Denmark – has only been shown to a handful of countries since it was finalised this week.

Secret? By a shadowy “circle of commitment”? Now it sounds like Presbyterians…

The agreement, leaked to the Guardian, is a departure from the Kyoto protocol’s principle that rich nations, which have emitted the bulk of the CO2, should take on firm and binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, while poorer nations were not compelled to act. The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions.

The bastards are going to make other countries abide by rules too?

I blame the Protocols of the Elders of Gravlox…

    Just a damn minute here. Pajamas Media says Victor David Hansen hacked and leaked, not some Rooskie. Can’t Americans get credit for anything anymore?

    Gee, the Russians are self-serving thieves. Who woulda thunkit?

    And as for this “Danish Text”….golly, you’d think that the commies are still trying to rule the world.

    Which is ironic indeed, seeing as how Russia might well be pushing back against those same communists.
